A tale of two orphans at the Coram Hospital for Deserted Children: Toby, saved from an African slave ship, and Aaron, the abandoned son of the heir to a great estate.

Set in Georgian England in the mid 1700s, Coram Boy brings to light the exploitation of women and their illegitimate children in a thrilling, sometimes terrifying, epic production featuring music by Handel.
